Kids and families

BRATTLEBORO Mother Up! Monthly Meet-Up: A simple vegetarian meal and childcare for ages 8 and under will be provided. Mother Up!: Parents Exchange for Change is a project of 350Vermont that brings together families to talk about the tough realities of climate change and to participate in the transition to a healthier and safer world. With winter holidays upon us, we'll step back from our legislative focus to explore the connection between climate change and consumption, including how we might shift the paradigm of buying and accumulating more stuff. Also, this is on the 7th night of Chanukah, so we'll include a celebration of light. 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. (This month we're meeting on the 3rd Mon. instead of the 4th.). KidsPLAYce, 20 Elliot St. RSVP helpful:
